Yesterday was an odd day full of fractured news stories coming out from all corners as GLORY held a press conference in Japan. In a way I miss the days of Japan being the epicenter of the fighting world. There was a certain art to covering events that were going on in Japan, a certain amount of work that had to be put in just to decipher what was going on. Maybe I'm just a masochist, but it is kind of fun. Yesterday was one of those days with the GLORY 13 press conference.
GLORY 13 Tokyo is set for December 21st and will be GLORY's Farewell to an Era, with that Era being of Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt and Remy Bonjasky, the three pillars of K-1. The event will feature a retirement ceremony for all three fighters, but will only feature the retirement bout (in Japan, kind of) for Peter Aerts, as he faces Rico Verhoeven.
